Pet lovers looking for something to do today should head out to Earth Day St. Louis.
Held in the Muny parking lot in Forest Park, Earth Day is a great place to have fun with your dog.
Last year, I took my dog Milo. It was his first festival and we both had a great time.
Here are some pictures of what you can expect to find at Earth Day St. Louis today!
Milo and I ran into my brother-in-law’s uncle…an Earth Day volunteer. It’s not surprising…St. Louis is such a big small town in some ways.
Dogs were everywhere.
There were plenty of water bowls for all of the dogs.
What a smart way to offer water fountains to both people and dogs!
There was a Golden Retriever rescue group raising awareness of the importance of adopting rather than buying a dog, and asking for donations to help them rescue more goldens.
Friendly dogs are welcome but do need to be on a leash no longer than 6 feet.
More than Just for the Dogs:
If you don’t have a dog, you should still go out to Earth Day. So many of the St. Louis festivals turn into an excuse to drink too much. Earth Day is different. It’s family friendly along with being dog friendly.
You’ll find lots of informational booths about area non-profits and businesses.
I loved that Earth Day St. Louis wasn’t too cramped. There were a lot of people there, but still plenty of places to sit at picnic tables or on the grass.
This little boy couldn’t resist the pond that sits in front of the Muny.
There’s even space for a game of catch.
I loved that there was an area where people could check their bike…similar to a coat check…so they didn’t have to worry about locking it up.
I didn’t take any pictures of the food booths. Between holding onto Milo and weaving through the more crowded areas, and hanging onto the food I bought for myself…I just didn’t have enough hands.
